Major is the junior-most field rank there is. This means that, while a Major can be bossed around by higher-ranked officers, they also have the most room to grow. This makes them ideal protagonists. Among field officers, a ColonelBadass may be more of a leader and authority figure, but it's the Major who gets his hands dirty, shows what he's really made of, faces the music head on -- and is affected by the consequences.

* Major Motoko Kusanagi from ''GhostInTheShell'' is not only a [[ColonelBadass Major Badass]] but also a ''major badass''! She fits the trope perfectly as she can [[OfficerAndAGentleman behave like a lady]] if she wants to, but usually rather disables tanks with her bare hands or fight of several cyborgs in her dress uniform, [[CombatStilettos complete with skirt and high heels]].
* The Major from ''{{Hellsing}}''. An interesting case in that, while he is not physically imposing or even skilled at combat, he becomes awesome through his sheer tactical brilliance, awesome speeches, and MagnificentBastard status. For that reason, he's one of the most memorable things about the series.
